  • Cleaning Scanner

    I've got an HP all in one.

    Works great except when I scan docs through the document feeder I a line in the scan.

    No lines if I put one sheet directly on the glass, only if it is through the feeder.

    How do I clean this up ?

    I know a new unit would be cheap but still I hate to waste

    On my old all in one there was a separate glass strip just to the left of the large glass. When it got dirty the docs from the adf had one or more lines.

      gdwnphx is correct. When you scan a doc via the automatic document feeder (adf) it passes over a small "strip" of glass so that the scanner head need not move (since the paper is doing the moving). There should be a way to get to that area, either by opening the unit or the covering, and clean just that small area with an alcohol wipe.
